I think that refers to the number of times you've (re)built the kernel.
So a fresh install will be #0, but it looks like you've changed your
configuration and rebuilt the kernel once since then.
FreeBSD seems to need far less kernel config tinkering now than it used
to. I recall doing a lot of kernel builds back in the 2.2.x days just to
make my hardware useable (or maybe I was dinking with it "just
because"). Anyway, the # number would increment with each kernel
